Consumer organisation blasts toll road price hike

Consumer organisation blasts toll road price hike
  • Rises of up to 65 per cent on the AP-7 over Holy Week have been described as "abusive"

The Facua Málaga consumer organisation is demanding explanations from the Fomento ministry which authorised rises in tariffs on the AP-7 for 15 days around Easter.

The organisation considers the rises, of up to 65 per cent in some cases, are “abusive” and unnecessary with regard to covering costs.

It has also questioned the definition of a ‘frequent user’ (eligible for a discount) which at this moment is fixed at 60 uses in the past four months.
